Step 1

For the pastry:-
Sift the flour, add the salt, baking powder (if you are using it) and work in the butter or Ghee.

Step 2

Add in half the water and mix to make a soft dough.

Step 3

Add the rest if you need to.

Step 4

Knead the dough until it is soft and pliable.

Step 5

Roll out the dough to about a 1/4 inch and cut out in circles.

Step 6

For the Filling:-
Peel and cook the potato and cut into medium dice.

Step 7

Heat the oil in a skillet or fry pan.

Step 8

Once the oil is hot, add the cumin and mustard seeds and fry until they splutter, usually for about 2 secs.

Step 9

Add the onions and cook until translucent.

Step 10

Add garlic, ginger paste and garam masala.

Step 11

Cook for about 3 mins.

Step 12

Add coriander leaves, salt and pepper and stir well.

Step 13

Remove from heat.

Step 14

Moisten the edges of the pastry circles with water.

Step 15

Put the filling in the center and fold into a triangle.

Step 16

Heat oil to 350 and cook the samosas until golden brown.

Step 17

Drain on paper towels.

Step 18

:- Serve with Mint or Tamarind chutney.

Step 19

:- If you prefer baking, place the samosas on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. If you bake, the texture of the outside will not be as crispy as it should.

Step 20

*** Note: Garam masala is a blend of spices that are often added at the end of the cooking process or on the completed dish. To get the best flavor, purchase the spices whole, roast them on a dry pan and grind them yourself in a coffee grinder (that you don’t want to use for coffee).
The ingredients are:-
Cinnamon(Karugapatta) sticks - 2 sticks of 2 " each
Cloves(Grambu) - 6 nos
Whole black peppercorns - 1 tsp
Black cardamom pods - 4 nos
(open and use only the seeds)
Whole green cardamom pods - 5 nos
